Product Description

Miriam Makeba, who departed this life in 2008, was much more than just a singer. She was a political activist who used her gifts to bring the plight of her mother country, South Africa, to the world. When Paul Simon controversially broke the global cultural embargo to record 'Graceland' in the mid Eighties, she assisted him, reasoning that it kept South Africa's problems in the headlines and in the world's debating chambers - even though she was accused of being a traitor to the cause. This combination of ethics, practicality and a wonderful singing voice earned her over the years the unofficial honour of Empress of African Song or, more simply Mama Africa. Sadly she had many tragedies to overcome in her personal life, but this only served to push her to further heights. This compilation illustrates the early musical chapters of a fascinating life.

Miriam Makeba voice is pure and raw all at the same time she did so much for the people of Africe but we in the west/English speakiing world have hardly heard of her what a pity. If you like music with a soul and beat this is a must buy. Whilst your at it check out her life story one of the unsong heroines of the last fifty/sixty years i would loved to have seen her perform live :) she was the sky lark of the group of that name that tells all you need to know of her voice:)short of listening to her - dont miss the oppotunity.

The Legendary Mama Africa Miriam Makeba's music is timeless. I miss her so much. I am so grateful to be able to find albums like this one from her early years when she was at the height of her career.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pata Pata 17 Aug 2014
By jns1944 - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Got this for the song Pata Pata and it was some bad version that wasn't even recognizable to the original 1967 version. If you're interested in that song don't get this album. This was a gift that turned out to be a very bad choice because Pata Pata was the recipients favorite song. Ended up buying another album that had the right version.
